Subject: My last Grateful Dead show
It is good to see the positive review up first and I am sure many of these later day dead heads went on to follow the many incarnations of the band after Jerry left the building.
I would say my take on the show would lean towards the Second reviewer and I felt he was generous and diplomatic because I left the show with a heavy heart.
It was shortly after this I signed up for a 3 year hitch with Uncle Sam. (I could see the handwriting on the wall)
I did get to see a few more Jerry shows and I made my peace with the end of the world as I knew it.(Garcia is the only person dying so far that I felt I had lost someone in my inner family circle) The Garcia shows were much and way better than this show on so many levels. So I never went to another 65-95 GD show.
But still I would not discount the first review because I know their was so much going down at shows that the mic's never could capture.
I just new the rainbow had ended for me and it was time to let someone else get my seat on the bus.
At some point I need to listen this show but for now I will just skip on the rating part. (although my gut says a 3 is probably about right assuming the sound is decent.)
"You see me crying, Don't let it bring you down"
At this point in the tour, I'm guessing Garcia was using again. The splendid track record of their late winter shows is nowhere in evidence, and this show in particular has Jerry playing pretty desultorily for the most part. Dire Wolf & the 2nd set ending aside, no better than professional & sometimes not even that good.
Subject: BEST SHOW OF THE 90'S!!
Sugaree...soaring Jerry solos!
So Many Roads...Best I've heard
Eternity...very powerful, great harmonies
Broken Arrow... can be a bit corny sometimes, but Phil is right on with this one!
Everythig from drums to the end of the show!
Perfect show closer! Drums with Baba Olahuntia(SP?) sends them soaring to primitive realms of conciousness which sets the tone for Space. After exploring the unknown for six minutes or so, the music slowly morphs into something familiar then Phil drops that bomb to start The Other One, and the crowd goes wild (this is something that is lost on the SB). Bobby seems to get abducted by aliens during the verses (the voice change seemed to take him by surprise as much as the audience!) Then we melt down into a slow, beautiful version of Attics. Absolutely incredible!! Brought a tear to my eye the first time I heard it! Then they waste no time with the opening chords of Throwing Stones. Very fun version! Then NFA!! What could be a better song to follow Throwing Stones? "Picture a bright blue ball just spinning, spinning free. Dizzy with possibilities.....You know our love will not fade away!!!" The 2 1/2 minute audience sing-a-long after NFA is priceless! And the band comes back with Liberty without missing a beat. Great encore!! "Leave me alone! Gonna find my own way home!!" Thank you Grateful Dead!! It is shows like this one that earn you a spot in the history books as one of the greatest bands of all time...Jehovah's Favorite Choir!!!
